This restaurant has a great setting on Rittenhouse Sqaure, which was in full bloom the evening we had a light meal at an outside table. Having dined at lots of cafes in Paris, this restaurant is a Disney-like reproduction of a typical one (except the food is a lot better than Disney). The contents of the menu, the style of service, and the preparation are all at a high standard. I would not give the restaurant 5 stars in Paris, but in the US it deserves a very strong recommendation. We had a green salad, which was beautiful bibb lettuce with paper thin slices of root vegatable and a wonderful vinegar and oil dressing, and the nightly special, which was a Dover sole garnished with asparagus. The sole was fresh, and perfectly cooked, having a bit of crispness on both sides without being overdone. It was beautifully deboned and served with the four filets still attached to the tail bone -- so, some good technique in the kitchen. There was a server in charge of our table, but food was delivered by a separate team, who had clearly run straight from the kitchen. We walked past the place several times over the course of the weekend, and it was pretty jammed, even when other places were empty. We ate there at 5:30 on a Monday night, and got one of the last outside tables. Definitely on the visit again list.
